    ....But the judge, Army Col. James Pohl, said tribunal rules give the judges sole authority to delay cases and that postponing proceedings against Abd al Rahim al Nashiri was not reasonable and "does not serve the interest of justice."

    Nashiri is charged with conspiring with al Qaeda to send an explosives-laden boat into the side of the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden in 2000. The attack killed 17 U.S. sailors and Nashiri would face execution if convicted. His arraignment was set for early February.

    He has to respect the divisions of power as required by the constitution. :) He can request but he cannot require.

    Gutsy call.

    The new C-i-C will definitely try to end his military career.

    His arrogance won't allow anything else.

    He is a military Judge. He works for Obama. What happens when you refuse a request from your boss?

    MacArthur was sacked for his actions against President Truman!!! He was leading the forces in Korea at the time.

    Cheers,

    And MacArthur is an American hero. Can't say the same for Harry.
